    • Kabbalah Course Discussion Group (Last post by Edan)
    • Has everyone watched the second video now? For some reason I couldn't get the video to run properly so I had to suffer with only audio and I did so while I was doing something else so I have only very brief notes. Here is what I do have: Process of development… be more than animal… be fully conscious Creator created to bring pleasure to the created We are a vessel.. a desire to receive pleasure. We are not just the body.. The only thing created was the desire to receive pleasure. Creator is the will to bestow.. we have the desire to receive, but this brings us to want to bestow back Humans suffer from control.. ‘growing ego’ as we develop Still Level - the things we need to survive (natural responses, same as animals) Vegetative Level - Riches.. gain something over others Animate Level - level of control - development but only for itself Human Level - knowledge By the end of the human level, we move up towards the creator consciously Purpose is to reveal what is already there but what we cannot perceive; we were there originally but we could not perceive it. Our current era shows the increasing desire for spirituality As we get to the ‘point in the heart', previous things that fulfilled desire are no longer enough. Nothing lasting. He/she in Kabbalah is not about physical gender but about whether one bestows or receives; so a man who is receiving is she, regardless of his gender.
    • The Reiki Thread :-) (Last post by Kitsu Tails)
    • haha Aye...Breathing Underwater us humans havn't figured out yet XD :woohoo: As long as there is some kind of "Flow" then im happy ^_^ In my opinion, differentiating our breath is meerly an attempt to Psych your mind. There is not "Cookie Cutter" way to do energy work. It is all meant to be a Natural form of expression from yourself....and your patient. Changing how you breath is just a way to make your mind more intent and focused on it's desire. To heal, attune, align, ground..... The way I do the same Intent could be different for you. You have to find your natural methods your way :)

    • Men Hardwired to be Better than Women at Chess (Last post by Edan)
    • Regarding your last point, this is relevant to something I studied recently which suggests that parents speak more often to girls as children than boys, leading to better language development. Possibly explains your journalism point.

    • Line between comedy and racism? (Last post by Radar6590)
    • I'd be interested in examining why comedy writers feel the need to add satire based on race in the first place. What is the goal of it? Some people believe that making light of serious situations shows that people can laugh at themselves and others. There is something to be said for having a certain reverence for a culture that is different from your own. You can debate the context of the joke ad infinitum but from the article it sounds like half of the disagreement came from sloppy, inaccurate set designs and names. At least the movie is making some strides by bringing in cultural experts and appropriately responding to the concerns of their Native American actors.
    • Art & Jediism (Last post by Rob78)
    • I work as an Illustrator and sculptor and I definately can associate with what people are saying here. For me personally I feel a terrific link to the force when I actually take the time to really study a subject, especially from nature. It's not just about recreating what you see before you, but understanding everything that goes into the make up of it, such as light, shadow, texture form etc. when sketching in particular, and using the imagination a reservoir of inspiration comes from within, and often I don't really know or understand what I'm putting on to the page, it just flows, sometimes with amazing results, and at other times a confusing jumble of scribbles. I think art in whatever form is a reflection of our state of mind, and a means of expressing this. I was an art teacher for an international school, and I can honestly say that it was one of the most touching experiences of my life to see children from different cultures(some conflicting) come together to express their creativity.
    • Personality and its Transformations (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • this is a lecture series that ive been watching and i find myself wanting to post different videos from it across a wide range of the topics going on here at the temple - so - rather than pell melling bits and pieces of the series all over the place, which i imagine would be both disorganized and irritating, i would like to share them all in one thread and then whoever is interested can watch the series is is called Personality and its Transformations and its from a class by Jordan Peterson en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan_Peterson from his website jordanbpeterson.com/ It was issues of personality and its transformations that thrust psychology into the forefront of popular consciousness during the twentieth century. Psy230S addresses these intensely interesting topics. The first half of the course deals with classic issues of psychology. The psychoanalytic thinkers -- Freud, Jung and Adler -- are placed in a context of pre-experimental religious and ritual thought, devoted to the transformation of habit and interpretive schema. The existentialists, phenomenologists, and humanists -- concerned with the relationship between the individual, meaning and health -- are discussed from the perspective of philosophy and political science. The constructivists are dealt with from a viewpoint that is simultaneously developmental and ontological. The second half of the course deals with issues of modern experimental psychology, from a more biological standpoint. Issues of motivation and information-processing are considered from within a standpoint that is essentially cybernetic: how do human beings operate in the world? What are their goals, their ends and means? What role do emotions and fundamental motivational states play in adaptation to the environment? How might personality traits and disorders be understood, from within such a framework? theyre all just over an hour and imo they are absolutely awesome and very relevant to everyone if anyone wants to discuss a video in particular just go for it even if the thread has moved passed it - if its interesting then jump in i hope others enjoy these as much as i have heres the first two videos Introductions Mythological Representations
